Surprise singing at sea

Last week, our passengers onboard Côtes des Dunes had a nice surprise when an 86 member “Rock choir” suddenly broke into song after leaving the port of Dover. The choir were on their way to France to perform in Parc Montsouris and in Disneyland Paris.

The choir sung the hits “Don’t stop me now” by the legendary Queen and “Shut up and dance” by American rock band Walk the Moon, and they were joined by members of the public and some of the crew in the Horizon restaurant.

Singer and conductor Lizzie Deane says: “We do flash mobs to give the members another new experience, the buzz of performing to an unsuspecting public, and to ‘spread some joy’. It’s great fun for members and public alike.”

Naomi Harper, PR Manager at DFDS, says: “We were delighted to be able to offer passengers sailing with us this special exclusive performance. The atmosphere when the choir started singing was electric and unexpectedly emotional. It was lovely to see passengers of all ages joining in, from toddlers bopping to adults singing along and cheering!”.
